This was our first experience in a KOA Cabin and we enjoyed the stay. The cabin was clean with free wifi and cable tv. The restroom was clean but the shower head was rather low. Free coffee was a nice touch and the clerk allowed me to put a frozen cooler pack in the freezer. The clerk was very nice and helpful, but he had severe problems using the computer software in order for us to make payment. I would have to leave it with him and check back while he worked on it. It was a little frustrating, but his friendly attitude made up for it. - sandrag

Owners are office staff and very helpful. Park is 2+ miles from town but they offer a free shuttle bus every 2 hours. Entrance to the park is challenging as you must make a hard right turn in and up a very steep hill. Sites are level but stark and VERY close together. Showers/restrooms are very clean and tidy. - fivertug

Nice park very near to Deadwood. The park has a shuttle during the summer that runs about once an hour to take you into Deadwood. The park sites are level gravel with concrete patios and a picnic table. The spaces are tight and would not recommend anything over about 30' of travel trailer with tow vehicle. This park has excellent cable with many stations. Verizon LTE only 1 bar or 2, but can be usable for data. Did not see the dog walk section as it was up a hill. This park is older but well kept. The staff were very helpful and nice. Good park for smaller rigs, and the site are quite close together. Would recommend if you rig fits. - wtravlr1

Great location for visiting casinos, also driving to Mt Rushmore and Devil's Tower.
Easy access to Mickelson 109 mile trail at bottom of hill from RV park. Fine walking dogs. Clean park with garbage pickup at site. - rvreviews

This RV park is disgusting. It infuriates me when I use a rating system from a very reputable camping guide that rated this park a 9.5, only to find that this park is one of the worst we have ever stayed at.
1. The cost is very high.
2. The people operating this park are inept. The woman who checked us in doesn't know a thing about RVs. I called early that morning and told her THREE times that my motorcoach was 35 feet long and that we had a tow vehicle. She said she had a 40 ft back-in site for us. When we arrived the site couldn't accommodate us. It was way too small. She gave us another site and told us it was 61 feet long. It wasn't true. It was just long enough. We barely fit.
3. The park is grossly overcrowded. The sites are so close together you can barely get your pop-outs to go out. If you have a Class A, do not stay here unless they confirm they have a pull-through site for you. You will not fit here.
4. The bathrooms and showers are filthy. There is mold/mildew everywhere. It can be cleaned as I scraped it with my fingernail and it came off. They don't clean the restrooms. There was hair all over the shower and tiles are broken. Don't shower here.
5. The people staying here in this park are loud, disruptive, and drunk. There is no quiet time. We saw people standing on the roofs of their travel trailer drinking. It is not family friendly. The tenants here drive their ATVs all night long.
6. The trash dumpsters are not emptied regularly. The trash is overflowing here. We couldn't take our trash out. Gross.
7. There is no grocery store in Deadwood. Bring groceries with you or plan to drive to Lead, SD for food.
8. There is no Wi-Fi. There is a hotel across the street that the RV park uses their password to use their Wi-Fi. It doesn't work. No cable and no television stations can be received here.
We would never stay here again. Never. And I wish we could get our money back. We paid almost $100 for 2 nights to stay in a dump. - Perfection expected

My wife booked this park before we left on our trip. She spoke with the owner who was very nice but, in hindsight, overstated the park. They were not allowing campfires while other parks in the same area were. The bathrooms were not clean and the spots were small. The amenities (pool, play area) were overstated and not very nice. While they will tell you that you can walk to town (Deadwood, SD), it is over a mile to the desirable part of town and part of the walk requires you to walk along the edge of the road that has no shoulder. When we made our complaints after check-in, the person working the counter did not seem concerned at all so we asked for a refund, re-connected and headed out to another campground. - Phydeauxman

Not all pull-thru spaces have sewer hook-ups, yet you pay the same price. Ours didn't have sewer, and it was tight getting into the spot. Very close to each other. Grass sites. The dump station is awkward, far off the lane and back-in. Was told to enjoy the All-You-Can-Eat pancake breakfast as if it was either included in the HIGH rent or was inexpensive. Pancakes $1 each, sausages $3, bacon $3, eggs $3, coffee $2!!! Not exactly all-you-can-eat--more like "eat what you can afford"! Difficulty in getting onto Wi-Fi; SLOW Wi-Fi in the evening. Otherwise, the facility was clean and quiet. No road noise. - Pamilu

The bathrooms were way too small for this size campground, were not clean, and are not handicap accessible as their website states. WiFi did not work anytime during our stay. The sites were grass covered and wet most of our stay and it had not been recently cut. Would not recommend. - Tomk2

The park sites were extremely close (3-4' apart). We had reservations for 5 days with full hookups. When we got there the owner said that "full hookups" to them meant the "honey truck" would come to your sight twice weekly and drain your black water. With the gray water we were told to drain the gray water on to the ground. This is very unsanitary. Due to a power failure on and off all night we left the next day. We made reservations 30 days in advance and received a horrible RV spot. The park was clean, but you were crammed in. - sheenax

Campground is quiet and clean. Roads are a bit narrow, but all the big rigs here during my stay managed with no problems. Staff very friendly and helpful. If they didn't have what I needed in their store, they offered to run into town and get it for me. Pool is small but nice for a quick swim-pool is also heated. No loud late night parties allowed- very family oriented. Great views of the surrounding mountains-most of the campground has mature trees mixed in. We could see deer right from our campsite. Water pressure is not very good. Cell service and WiFi signal is weak at best- great to really get away from the rest of life. We would definitely stay here again. - Shootecogo

Park people are nice as they come, but this place is in bad shape. Roads are very narrow and in very bad shape. Many cars coming in and out dragged bottom in the ruts. I had to use 4 wheel drive to get into my site and out of it. There is just enough gravel on each site for the wheels to fit on then there is grass and mud everywhere else. My site was at the bottom of a row of 5 pull through sites and all the water drained to my site which made a mess. This park has great potential, but somebody has to do more than "get by" maintenance. In the condition the park is in now, I would not stay again and I feel the price paid for a park in this condition was a bit much. - PJ's Park and Play

We arrived early in the season, still snow on the ground. Friendly and helpful staff. Small camp store. Not many campers there, very quiet but probably not true in season. Sites are roomy and nice view. Some mud, some gravel some grass at site. Utilities are fine. Should be central to most attractions but Hiway 87 was tempoarily closed to Custer State Park. Really large rigs may have issues getting in but our 34' was fine. - rudyhehn

This was by far the best KOA we have ever stayed at! There is so much to do for families and it's close to all the attractions. The restrooms are outstanding, as are the shower rooms, which were very private with a locked door to each shower stall.
The staff was also very friendly and very informative. They could not help you enough. We decided to leave early and we were not charged for the day we had reserved and did not use. I highly recommend this KOA to anyone, especially families. - Barb Thiel
Jul 2016 - $90.00
This is the largest, nicest KOA we have ever stayed in. Over 600 sites but each site was spacious. Tons of amenities for all ages. This was like an amusement park for our kids...they were dead exhausted each night. Very helpful staff that did not nitpick you on everything. We only stayed here 2 nights on our way to Yellowstone but now want to come back and make it a destination. Only negatives I would give it is the lack of Internet/TV/cell service and the water retention in our spot after it rained. - Phydeauxman
Jun 2016 - $75.00
The amenities at this KOA are awesome. This is one of those campgrounds that you can go to and never leave because of all the things they have to offer, good restaurant, coffee shop, wine shop, bar, pizza and ice cream parlor, horse back riding, UTV rentals on site, etc. I could go on and on. The staff has this park running like a top, one staff member was a little grouchy but one person could not sway my opinion. The sites are a little tight, they definitely pack them in. The proximity to all the attractions in the black hills is perfect, and the views are breath taking. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone going to the black hills. - Edouble

We stayed a week at Rafter J Bar. It is a very nice campground and appears to be well run. We were in the Line Camp area and my biggest complaint was the road noise from the highway. It wasn't horrible but at $65.00 a night, I would expect it to be a lot quieter. The WiFi never worked in our area the entire time we were there. Our site was level and my satellite dish was able to work well. I have T-Mobile as my cell carrier and I had very strong signal inside the camper. There are some very nice sites at Rafter J (the vast majority) but we did walk the campground and saw some very bad sites as well (very unlevel, close to the highway, close to neighbors). All in all it is a good place. There are lots of choices in the area so I would probably try something different the next time I come back to the Black Hills. - cgaskins

A beautiful resort located conveniently to Rushmore, Crazy Horse and all the Black Hills attractions. Sites are located in different areas around a large meadow. Most are among tall pines with mountain views. Quiet at night. - summergames84
Jun 2016 - $60.00
Very large sites considering it's a private commercial campground. Would be 5 stars except for one thing. Fires out by 11pm rule. Seems a bit ridiculous, considering we're all adults and maybe would like to spend a late light while on vacation enjoying a relaxing fire while the kids are sleeping. Security is at your site at 11pm sharp making sure your fire is out and you're in. Otherwise the pool is great and the store is well stocked. Won't be returning however until the stupid curfew on campfires is changed. - Money2Burn

Stayed 3 nights. Park is centrally located to all attractions in the area. You do share covered patio pad and fire pit. Clean grounds and the staff are friendly. - GMeek
Jul 2016 - $40.00
DO NOT STAY HERE if you have a big rig (42+ft). Spaces are so tight that multiple attempts required to get in. Front desk person did not seem to know what was available and had little to no sense of urgency. Moved 3 times before found a site that was large enough with power working. Person outside assisting was helpful, but parking and waiting in between spaces took over an hour. Lots of dust kicked up by vehicles on end sites. Will not stay here again. - Dvoe
Jun 2016 - $40.00
Very easy to get to and park. Friendly staff and went out of their way to help. Noise from the road but not bad enough to keep you awake. Easy to get to MT Rushmore without pulling trailer up and down hills. Would come back again. - Luthersr
Jul 2016 - $6.00
We stayed here for a couple nights as guests of friends who are members and our cost per night reflects that. The park is beautiful and has literally any activity you could ever wish for. The pool is magnificent. It has doggie parks. It has everything, even its own fuel station right in the park. Our utilities were as we expected with no surprises. The only thing which could be viewed as a negative are the excessive amount of very strictly enforced rules. The park is filled with very friendly, very happy people. The park is a very safe place to stay with security patrolling the park constantly. We would stay here again sometime. - Kent and Margaret

First a disclaimer...we really love and enjoy public parks (state, county, city, federal, BLM) and almost always stay at those when we can. We're between visiting a couple of great SD state parks so decided to stay someplace with full hookups, so we could do laundry. Hart Ranch was on the way, so we decided to try it. They have a deal, where if you sit through a short sales presentation, you can stay 3 nights for $95. Not cheap, but not bad. Short presentation done then off to our site. A corner lot which sounded great, but on arriving at the site (99), first problem...very short for our 43' coach and little to no room for tow parking. Don't even think about hanging the rear end of the RV over the grass!! Very small yard on passenger side with many close neighbors, but rear yard is pretty open. Tons of rules about what you can, and cannot do. Lots of traffic including cars, motorcycles, walkers, bicycles, kiddy train, scooters, golf carts, RVs, and ATVs. Not at all relaxing or quiet. We seriously do not understand the appeal of this place, except for location. Most city subdivisions have more space, less traffic, and more quiet. On the plus side? Lots to do in the area, quiet at night, pretty location, some huge dog runs, wide concrete sites, and no wood fires. We never say never, but have zero desire to stay here again. - Jerry and Betsy

Great park with lots of amenities especially for kids. 2 dog parks. One side is non dog, but plenty of room to walk dog. Security drives around. Quiet location by working ranch. Beautiful setting. Easy access to all Black Hills attractions. - rvreviews

Overpriced, no amenities. The sites are small and shady no one was next to us so it wasn't bad, but if it were full, it would be cramped and noisy. Our site was not level. When we arrived, it was not busy, the owner checked us in we did not get a flyer listing camp rules, location of trash, etc. She seemed like since she already received 2 nights deposit, it did not matter that we were here. Owner lives on the property and seemed like we were imposing on her property. She then told us that cable would be $2 extra and we would be given a cable box that we would have to program and also call the cable company to turn it on. We asked if antenna would work and she said probably not. We did not purchase the cable, we did not raise antenna and received 14 channels very clear. Good wifi. This campground is okay if you just want a place to park your rig. We like to sit outside, relax and take in the views, but the only view we had was the backside and trash bins of the hotel next door. The lake is a short walk from the sites to a large grass field with not even a bench or table. This park is away from I-90 in town and not really easy to get to. This park is close to the attractions we were interested in seeing. We would not stay here again. - savizz

Wow, finding an RV park in Rapid City in October is dicey! I called a few and found out they were closed for the season. This one was still open, and the good news is..... they are open year round! The bad news is..... you have to weasle through Rapid City about 10 miles to get here, and there is road construction where you are holding your breath hoping you don't knock down one of the little divider sticks. The rate I am showing is with Good Sam Discount BEFORE taxes. Apparently, cable TV is $2 extra, but the owner forgot to ask me if I wanted cable when I checked in. When I asked about cable and Wi-Fi, he told me to go ahead and hook up to the cable. The cable had OODLES of channels. Wi-Fi worked great! The only down side is that the sites are cramped. The rental cabins are right behind your back window, and your next door neighbor is pretty close. Well, it's not "pass the poupon" close, but kind of cramped. No one was next to me at the time, so it wasn't bad, but I can see if it were full, it would be cramped! There are great trees for shade, but if you have slides, this could be a problem. I am only in a 32 foot Class C with 2 slides, but I had to position myself so the slides wouldn't hit anything. There is a great lake to walk to and sit near. I don't tow a car and this place isn't close to much to walk to. - DXSMac

We had a group of 13 : tent campers, cabin renters and big rig RVs. This is a small but wonderful park. The sites are not huge but it is very clean , there are wonderful shade trees, a lake on one side and a lovely, fast moving creek on the other.We all LOVED it ! - Lady Bikki

We pulled in at supper time and were shown to our site by the camp host, which was great. This park is very quiet - even when full -- only distant traffic noise and no loud music or parties going on, which is great.
The kids enjoyed the pool to themselves. The whole site is on a hillside so there's some view to be had, but the roads go up and down the slope so they didn't ride their bikes very much.
If we couldn't find another campground further out of town with trees, we would stay here again.
Wifi was pretty much useless in the evenings and very slow the rest of the time. I had to go to McDonalds down the road to get some work done. - CalebSG

We booked this park without reading the reviews. After booking we read the reviews and were concerned. When we arrived we found that the new owners have been putting a lot of work in to the place and we enjoyed it very much. Friendly, helpful owners, adequate space between RV's, beautiful view, great central location. Pool was clean. They have made real efforts to bring it up to a top notch park and we would stay there again. - catriona1

The staff are very pleasant.
The campground has obviously been allowed to run down and the new owners are renovating. The buildings have all been freshly painted. A ground crew was working the entire time we were here - replacing fencing around the pool and cleaning up broken pavement. It looks like they are preparing to repave the roads.
The sites are dirt and weeds. Each site is terraced into the hill, ugly, but reasonably level. There are trees that are dead and need to be removed. The view from the sites is lovely. You can see across the valley during the day and the city lights at night.
The WiFi is terrible. In spite of several hot spots, the bandwidth is inadequate and horribly slow. It dropped out while I was writing this review in the middle of the night and I had to start over. - Impkitti
